Quirky is a company that believes that the best ideas in the world aren't actually in the world -- they're locked inside people's heads. They make invention accessible by creating an innovative space that brings together those interested in design to conceive, design, manufacture and market new products. Quirky crowdsources ideas and if enough people like it, Quirky's product-development team makes a prototype and the item is refined and vetted by user reviews and a solid team of designers. Product ideas stem from real people that are trying to solve real problems that they encounter in their day to day life.
"The best products in the world are the result of problems that people are experiencing. They're not frivolous things. They're simple problems that resulted in brilliant solutions."
- The New York Times
"The Proctor & Gamble of the 21st century."
- Bloomberg Businessweek
"The products aren't ones you'd see in a Museum of Modern Art gift store - not high-end design for design's sake. We try to solve real problems faced by real people."
- San Francisco Chronicle
